Well, I obviously stink at diagnosing gall bladder problems, because that's what I thought I might have when I went to the ER and turned out to have colon cancer! On the other hand, the doctors were betting on appendicitis, until they saw the CT results. Or maybe they were just being nice and were only HOPING for appendicitis, given the alternative.
However, I consulted Dr. Google, and my diagnosis is STRESS. "Part of your body’s response to stress and anxiety may be to speed up the digestive process. This limits the volume of nutrients your body can absorb and may cause diarrhea and yellow stool."
Anything that shortens the digestive process and causes undigested fat to wend it's way through you more quickly can cause yellow, floaty stools. Like chemo, colectomy.....
